Especially in women's tennis, I sometimes see 3-setters with a player retiring when she's down 5-2, 5-3... in the 3rd.
I can understand it if they can't walk anymore, but if they can, why not play the 4 points left...?

I agree, it's rather embarrassing to the game.

Yes, there's Srebotnik this week (5-1), that's what reminded me of it.
But I didn't know how serious her injury was, so I didn't mention her.

Yeah I think they should just finish the match. As long as you can walk and hold the racket just play out the final four points.
